Needless to say, in this day and age you're not likely to find hats with an entire bird stuck to the top of it, as that they seem to be as much of a berserk button as fur coats for the PETA crowd. Never fear, though--birds are still the go-to beastie for hats. They just aren't real.
For anyone who lives in a citified area, a bird on a wire is a pretty common sight, so it's no surprise someone decided to make a pattern dedicated to it.
How about a needlepoint bird on a straw hat?
Okay, okay--white peacocks do exist. However, they sure as heck aren't this tiny, and I'm pretty sure all those feathers are synthetic, so don't get all upset over this hat, alright?
...And once again, I find myself inordinately jealous of a kid's hat. At the rate this is going, it might as well be the subtitle for this blog.
I kinda like this one. It's got a simplistic charm to it.
And finally, for those of you who want to experience nature up close and personal-like, American eco-artist Erica Fielder's got your pate covered. She's created a hat that serves as a bird feeder, so as long as you're willing to sit perfectly still, you can get birds to come and rest on your noggin while they dine on seeds.
Just be cautious about bird droppings. That's all I've got to say on the matter.
See you next week!
